      Pros

      Knowledge of Sales, insurance industry as a whole. Also, have a lot of potential to make more money with commission.

      Cons

      No benefits, non steady income stream because of commission. State Farm makes it very apparent they have no affiliation with you.

      It has been an overall good experience working for a State Farm agency.

      Pros

      Small agencies with long time employees. If you're self-motivated it allows for self management. Have your own space and good hours. Variety of products to sell & service. Never boring if you like to learn new things. Company training is pretty constant. You can make as much commission as you want or depend on how hard you work.

      Cons

      Too much drama. Long time employees are older and set in their ways. There's no room for growth and very little team training for continued office success. Leadership isn't as strong in human relations. Staff is allowed to do as they wish too often with no serious repercussions. Very little incentives. No motivation for change. Everyone wants to be the boss. No benefits. No medical, No dental. Very little time off a year. Sick days and vacation time off are one and the same. No overtime permitted since it's salary. Time is deducted but no additional time or pay provided if you work over 80 hours. Difficult to sell because customer service work is often time consuming.
